HGE01. Pompeii. May 2006. West side, and south side with doorway to grave chamber. In 1887 Sogliano opened the grave chamber and found, covered in earth, two cremation urns enclosed in lead containers. Between the bones in the urns was an As of Cn. Piso (c.23BC), and an As of P. Lurius Agrippa (c.7BC). Also found were the remains of wood work and nails, parts of one of more small boxes richly decorated in  ivory, and a broken small clay ointment bottle. See Kockel V., 1983. Die Grabbauten vor dem Herkulaner Tor in Pompeji. Mainz: von Zabern. (p.111-5, Taf. 32-33). According to Garcia y Garcia, a bomb fell near here in September 1943. This caused the partial destruction and shattering of some blocks of the footings on the east side of this tomb, which had not yet been finished in 79AD. See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.160)
